Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of dead skin cells. The procedure aims to remove fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as make the skin’s surface look smooth. Dermaplaning is safe for most people, with little risk of side effects when it’s performed by a licensed and certified cosmetologist or esthetician.

Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity among cosmetic providers across the country. Using a surgical blade and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the bloodstream.
